FlySafair between Cape Town and the Kruger Park | The Planner

FlySafair has just announced their new route between Cape Town and the Kruger National Park. This opens up new opportunities for meeting organisers wanting to organise events around the Park and draw delegates from the Cape. This service will commence on 2 April 2024 and flights between the two iconic destinations will happen twice a week.

A significant boost to tourism

Up to now, connectivity between Cape Town and the Kruger Park has been limited, with a most travellers needing to fly between Cape Town and Johannesburg and then catch another flight to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport.

Says David Frost, SATSA CEO,

“FlySafair’s new Cape Town to Kruger route is a blessing for inbound tourism in South Africa. With Cape Town’s international two-way passenger figures soaring to 1.4 million in the first half of 2023 alone, surpassing pre-pandemic levels, and the Kruger Park attracting around 4 million visitors last year, it’s clear that these destinations hold a special place on the global travel map.”

Pack your bags

Flights will happen every Tuesday and Saturday, leaving Cape Town at 09:00 and arriving at Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport at 11.30. The plane will be turned around and take off from the Kruger at 12:05 and landing in Cape Town at roughly 14:50.

“This new flight route is a game-changer and a fantastic addition to FlySafair’s already impressive network. It seamlessly connects two of the most coveted travel experiences in South Africa,” concludes Murray Gardiner, GILTEDGE CEO.
